In a recent survey that involved 35 companies on the Good Place to Work (GPTW) list, Ripple (XRP) is the only blockchain and digital currency firm. Surprisingly too, Ripple is one of the best and most popular employers in the field of the technology industry. This record is specific for the San Francisco Bay Area.
Tech news publishing firm TechCrunch emphasized that companies have to fulfill their requirements with GPTW services such as ranking and certification. Moreover, in order to be listed, these companies must allow GPTW researchers to make a thorough physical assessment of the workplaces. In case the company cannot meet the requirements and the standards set by GPTW, then the place cannot expect to be certified or listed.
